Golden State Warriors parade set for Thursday in Oakland

Stephen Curry tucked a celebratory cigar into his right sock for safekeeping as he handled all of his post-championship obligations. Perhaps all summer long. Last year's 39 percent from 3-point range now looks like the aberration from his career 33.4 percent, and this year's 30.8 percent was his lowest since his first year in the league. "So I think they were great".

The Spurs lost in the Western Conference finals, but had Kawhi Leonard get injured in Game 1 of the series, leaving them without much chance to compete.

One day, my kids and I will tell their kids about the time we saw one of the best teams in National Basketball Association history - at its worst.

"We're obviously just getting started", Curry said after closing out Cleveland in Monday night's NBA Finals Game 5. It's kind of insane to think about the conversations we had this summer and going into the year about how we can both mesh and do what we do and be the players that we are.

The Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, clinching their second title in three years and their fifth in team history, avenging the loss to Cleveland after blowing a 3-1 lead a year ago.

"It's different just because of what happened past year to be honest", Curry said. If a superstar can get about the same salary by switching to a much better team, there's little incentive not to do so. "Steve will be our coach".

According to the oddsmakers at OddsShark, we should see a Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Finals for the fourth straight year.

Following Monday's win, he embraced his mother, Wanda Durant, on the court.

Later, he was straightforward and serious: "We were heartbroken last year, but this year was our turn". It was like adding Magic Johnson to those Larry Bird Celtics teams and then forgetting (at least a little) about Kevin McHale.

But the Warriors look like they're on the brink of something dynastic. You want to achieve the highest honour in the team sport, which is winning the championship. It's not about who scored what.

The run helped the Warriors win the second quarter by 15 points. "So you have a clear sense of what matters when you go through that stuff". And while the Warriors may have more so-called "star power", you could make a good argument that the Pistons' mentality and the sum of their parts was better.

Owner Joe Lacob will be pulling out his pocketbook to potentially give Curry a $200 million deal. But the Warriors also had shooting that would have made them the envy of even some of the toughest teams of all-time.

Golden State plays under a set of offensive-friendly rules, and critics said they wouldn't have stood up to the rugged play of the past. "There was never any question in my mind that this was going to work".

The Warriors won in 2015 before the Cavs made their historic comeback past year.

One moment late Monday captured the camaraderie that evolved. Finals MVP, 4-1, world champions. Nobody will have the same 15 players they ended the season with.

"I'm proud of you, son", she said.

"I don't feel like I sacrificed at all", Thompson told Lowe.
